Why You'll Love The Texas State Aquarium

We've been going to the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi, Texas for several years now. They've gone through many changes, but we've always had a good time. There's always lots to see and do!

Here's why you'll love it and why you should stop in if you're ever in Corpus Christi.







1. You can touch stingrays! This one popped up to say hello.





2. There are lots of fun photo ops.








3. The sharks are awesome.






4. You can be mesmerized by jelly fish. My daughter also got to (safely) touch one.






5. The flamingos are gorgeous and you can see them up close! This one kept talking to us.








Also, the gift store is fun.



Plus there are various shows throughout the day, so it's potentially a place you can spend for hours on end.



If you're looking for a place to eat after you explore the Texas State Aquarium, I recommend Blackbeards! It's nearby and the food is delicious.





Have you ever been to the Texas State Aquarium?

  17. Aquariums are always so much fun. I find them interesting and a 'step above' the zoo because you can't always see these types of creatures and learn all about them.
